Originally from Yancey County, I was born in the old clinic at
Higgins, down on Cane River. I moved to Virginia when I was in the 4th grade and later
returned to Yancey County and graduated from Cane
River High School. I returned to Virginia and attended Computer Learning Center in
Springfield Virginia for mainframe computer operations were I graduated with honors.
I worked in computer operations for 5 or 6 years and then moved into programming. I have been programming on the AS/400 (iSeries), Mainframe (zSeries), and Oracle platforms for about 24 years using lots of software too numerous to list. I have had the pleasure (as a programmer/analyst contractor) to have worked in some very interesting IT shops and even got to live and work in Honolulu, Hawaii for an 18 month contract gig.
I'm not a web designer by trade, I do this in my spare time and it is all volunteer work for MAIN. Send me an email (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will be more than happy to do adds, deletes, or updates for the MAIN Yancey County Website. The MAIN Yancey County Website is designed and maintained with Microsoft FrontPage.
Currently I live in Mebane, NC and you can visit my personal website at http://home.mebtel.net/~rsilvers/.
